Spain on Saturday eased Covid entry rules for unvaccinated tourists from outside the European Union, in a boost for the key tourism sector ahead of the peak summer holidays.

Until now travellers from outside the bloc - including Spain's main tourism market Britain - could only enter with proof of vaccination or recovery from Covid-19.

But as of Saturday visitors from outside of the EU will also be allowed to enter Spain with a negative Covid test result, the transport ministry said in a statement.

PCR tests must be carried out in the 72 hours prior to departure to Spain or an antigen test 24 hours prior to departure.

Meanwhile, billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates praised Abu Dhabi-led Hope Consortium for developing a world-class Covid-19 vaccine hub in the Capital.

Gates, a vaccine advocate, visited Abu Dhabi Ports’ state-of-the-art cold and ultra-cold storage facility that can hold all temperature brands of Covid-19 vaccines.

“It’s very modern. It got a lot of great refrigeration capacity, things are tracked very well,” he said at the KIZAD facility in remote area of Al Samha.

With an extensive end-to-end vaccine supply chain, the Consortium, along with its partners, have been able to deliver millions of vaccines from the point of manufacture to the point of immunisation.
